ALERT 1 BACK TO NORMAL (so they say!)

The golden rules under alert level 1 are If you are sick, stay home; If you have cold or flu-like symptoms get tested, wash your hands, sneeze and cough into your elbow and regularly disinfect shared surfaces.

Keep track of where you've been and who you've seen so we can use that for contact tracing if needed (If not attending club, training or with a group please sign the book in the foyer) Stay vigilant. The lower alert level means that community sport can restart without physical distancing requirements. However, physical distancing is still "encouraged" at level one. The government encourages people to use "contact diaries", in case of another outbreak.

The committee has had their first ZOOM meeting last week; how things are changing.

                                                    My life is attending ZOOM meetings weekly with Badminton New Zealand                                       as well as webinars with Sport Gisborne, Sport New Zealand, National Library Service covering topics on Coaching, Clubs where to, when we can play again in our Badminton Centre etc.

BNZ News The Board have discussed the set Affiliation Fee for 2020 and this will be reviewed in May to make a final determinant of the fee to Associations. Please note that we will be working with Associations on this and we have a high level of understanding of the current financial impacts Associations are facing (as we are facing them too).

      Behind the scenes the Committee and Badminton NZ continue to work for our sport in the changing climate. I am having weekly meetings by ‘Zoom’ with the Badminton NZ staff, CEO and Presidents of the 25 Associations in NZ. I will continue to join these and send on regular updates as decisions are made for our sport.

      Last week Badminton NZ released a new logo I attach a document about the release.

      Our treasurer, Justin is working behind the scenes to see how the Association will fare with no income. Some players have been sent invoices for outstanding bills, so we can all start with a clean slate when badminton recommences.

      If anyone needs support please contact me, ph. 0272648660 and I leave you with the draw for our current event we are all entered in!!!
